Wonderful ad on Vancouver bus


What a neat message! I can't make out who the ad has been purchased by, but it makes a profound pro-life statement. Thanks to Cristina Alarcon (a Vancouver pharmacist) for sending it along.

  1. This was a hilarious picture! Next time I go to Kentucky Fried Chicken, I will have to remember to say a respono prayer over my chicken leg! Really! We kill babies without wincing, and feel sorry for birds! What is the world coming too... don't know whether to laugh or cry!

  2. I like how the ad capitalises Her and Life. Maybe in reference to some chicken deity?

  3. It's from some outfit called Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary. They're running a whole bunch of "Go Vegan" ads on all kinds of venues wherever they can. They also run ads against drinking milk, claiming that milk comes from a grieving mother -- one assumes they mean the cow.

    They have a Facebook page: http://ta-in.facebook.com/album.php?aid=292888&id=348711124383&fbid=493773784383&ref=share

  4. I don't see the connection between the chicken ad and pro life for humans. I doubt this is going to help the pro life cause much.

    I know of a teenager who is a vegetarian. I don't think it has been a good thing for him. I don't see it as very healthy lifestyle. If it is for medical reasons that's one thing. It might be related to certain religious ideas originating from some easter religion.

  5. "I don't see the connection between the chicken ad and pro life for humans. I doubt this is going to help the pro life cause much."

    That's because there is no "connection," Wayne. And it's not intended to help the pro-life cause. It's intended to stop people from having anything to do with animal-generated products. And no, it's not related to any religion or religious ideals.

    And there is a difference between vegetarian and vegan. These folks are vegan.

  6. I'll take a stab at what Fr. Tim may have meant when he indicate a pro life message could be taken from the ad.
    We often here the comparison that a fetus is not a person as an egg is not a chicken so its perfectly ethical to kill it. The ad tells us to the chicken, the egg is of much more value to the chicken than we think. Its life itself.
    If you've ever tried to approach a goose sitting on her eggs or most any foul, you'll find out in a hurry that they'll risk their lives to protect them. Although they are not hatched yet, they'll protect them as though they were.

  7. Paul, keep in mind that this is not a "Pro-Life" ad; it's an anti-animal products ad. It's not about the chicken's egg. It's about the chicken.

    According to vegans, whose ad this is, the chicken herself has a right to life without being seen as a target and a meal for humans. They want you to have more consideration for her right to exist unmolested than for your own dietary needs and tastebuds.

    You're absolutely right. It was late when I posted.
    But had they been taking issue with the morality of taking a birds eggs from them to consume, a pro life message could be taken from the statement. Thats obviously not what Vegans intended in this message though I don't think they'd eat eggs either, or do they?.


    Cheers
